ON THE ROX , named after my lovely wife Roxanne, is a 2005, 23' Jones Brothers Cape Fisherman. Powered by a 2005 Yamaha 225 hp 4-stroke engine, this "Lite Tackle" edition, is the perfect boat for pursuing stripers and blues both in and "outside" the Kennebec River. With a spacious bow casting deck and custom "stability bar" the forward angler can cast with comfort and safety. Plenty of open space behind the helm provides a tangle free area for the "stern guy". In fact, two fly casters and 1 spin caster, or 4 spin casters can fish simultaneously. With a powerful remote controlled MinnKota trolling motor, the boat can cruise the shallows and ledges in total silence. With a top speed of 50+ mph, we can make it back to the launch in a hurry if necessary.
MAVEN'S HAVEN is a 17' Lund powered by a 60 hp tiller operated Mariner outboard. I consider this boat to be my "insurance policy", as I can guide up to 3 anglers if my larger boat is in the shop for repairs. The most versatile boat that I have ever owned, it is at home in both fresh and salt water. It is the #1 choice for my upriver striper trips.
MAVEN'S FEATHER is my secret weapon. The 16'1" Peenoe Classic, powered by a 9.9 Mercury outboard, allows me to get my clients into creeks, rivers and small ponds that are normally accessible only by canoes. This boat features built in outriggers for incredible stability and rod storage for 12 fly rods or 10 spinning rods. The bow angler can cast while standing or seated on a pedestal seat, while the second angler must remain seated in the center of the boat. Most of our smallmouth and largemouth fishing takes place from this boat and occassionally I'll even use it to chase stripers in the quiet coves of Casco Bay.
